Revolutionizing Women’s Health
The Women's Health Clinic at Ivinson Medical Group offers education on gynecologic surgical options to our community.
A year after the first robotic-assisted surgery at Ivinson, the da Vinci Xi surgical robot continues to improve women’s health in our community.
On Nov. 13, the Women’s Health Clinic at Ivinson Medical Group is hosting a free lecture on gynecologic conditions, potential complications and when to visit a doctor. A complementary dinner will be provided to all who attend.
The Women’s Health Clinic works to provide lifelong care and support for women in our community. Drs. Kim Westbrook and Derek Ewell will discuss the latest treatment options offered including minimally invasive robotic assisted surgery with our state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi robot.
This surgical system allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with just a few, small incisions. During surgery, the surgeon operates from a console table a few feet away from the patient. Computer technology allows the robotic instruments to mimic the movements of the surgeon, which are steadier than the human hand and can bend and twist far more than the wrist.
“The instruments have a range of motion of 720 degrees, which is obviously more than the human hand. With tremor filtration, this allows the instruments to remain very steady and accurate,” says Jamie Amicarella, da Vinci Clinical Sales Rep for Ivinson.
This free lecture will begin at 6:00 PM in Ivinson’s East Patient Entrance. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to see the da Vinci Xi surgical robot in person.
